Purification Affinity chromatography on a column with immobilized protein G.
Alternative Name Leptin Receptor (LEPR Antibody Abstract)
  • Leptin receptor (OB R) was identified as a leptin binding protein (Leptin, the product of the ob gene, is a single chain 16 kDa protein consisting of 146 amino acid residues.) OB R was found to be a member of the class I cytokine receptor family with a large extracellular domain comprising 816 amino acid residues. Leptin receptor exists in multiple forms with a common extracellular domain and a variable length cytoplasmatic portion. Alternate splicing from a single gene derives the six isoforms of the Leptin receptor. The soluble form of the Leptin receptor, OB R contains no intracellular motifs or transmembrane residues, thus it consists entirely of the extracellular ligand binding domain of the receptor. Long forms of OB-R transcripts were reported to be expressed predominantly in regions of the hypothalamus which provides evidence that Leptin receptor is important in body weight regulation. Expression of short forms of OB-R transcripts have been found in multiple tissues, including the choroid plexus, lung, kidney, and primitive hematopoietic cell populations. Leptin receptor may act as a negative regulator of Leptin activity and it may maintain a pool of available bioactive Leptin by binding and delaying its clearance from circulation. Soluble Leptin receptor levels are indirectly proportional to adiposity and are increased in females versus males. Leptin receptor levels are highest in infants, decrease into adolescence, and remain relatively stable throughout adulthood. Soluble Leptin receptor is also found upregulated in patients with chronic heart failure, end-stage renal disease and anorexia.
Research Area Cardiovascular, Fatty Acids, Hormones, Receptors
Pathways JAK-STAT Signaling, AMPK Signaling
Application Notes
  • Quality control: Indirect ELISA - to determine titer of the antibody SDS PAGE - to determine purity of the antibody
  • Otimal working dilution should be determined by the investigator.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Format Lyophilized
Reconstitution Add 0.1 mL of deionized water and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely. Slight turbidity may occur after reconstitution, which does not affect activity of the antibody. In this case clarify the solution by centrifugation
Buffer The antibody is lyophilized in 0.05 M phosphate buffer, 0.1 M NaCl, pH 7.2. AZIDE FREE.
Preservative Azide free
Storage 4 °C/-20 °C/-80 °C
Storage Comment The lyophilized antibody remains stable and fully active until the expiry date when stored at -20 °C. Aliquot the product after reconstitution to avoid repeated freezing/thawing cycles and store frozen at -80 °C. Reconstituted antibody can be stored at 4 °C for a limited period of time, it does not show decline in activity after one week at 4 °C.
